    I wrote a blog post a few months back, detailing some ideas I had for college students. Basically, there is some massive demands on this forum for high quality writing and reliable coding services.

    Jared pretty much has the market on his back, and because of that, he had to take his services from $5 per 100 words to $7 per 100 words to slow the demand because there were just too many orders to deal with. He actually shut his doors for a few months too.

    There is some good money waiting to be made and there is a lot of talent around your campus. Arts students can write some damn good content and for a reasonable price too. The same goes for coders. Hire those 2nd year coders and work with the big agencies that crawl this forum looking for talent.

    Put some ads up on your college's facebook groups, or ask some friends. Put up a BST for content writing + resell their services + ??? = PROFIT!

    There is a MAJOR need for high quality content around here. For example, there is a handful of journalists on here who write for big publications like Entrepreneur and Inc Magazine. They need ghost writers for each topic they write about. They need someone to sit down, research a topic thoroughly (something you're trained over and over to do in college) and then write some REALLY VALUABLE content on it. So few writers can actually write content that people actually want to read. When I pay $5 per 100 words, there have only been a handful of writers on here who have actually been able to teach me something new in the article. Teach me something new in a 600 word article, and I'll know my readers will love it.

    It's not rocket science, I've done it for coding services in the past but I've moved onto other stuff. If you're not making $500 a week and looking for something to do, start a content or programming service!

    This is more or less a rant, but certainly an easy way to make money for fellow college kids.

    Sure thing is that anywhere nowadays there's demand for quality ghost writers.
    There's so much sources to look at if you are a native english speaker with some skill..

    All of what you say works with many twists as well. You can promote or have textbook offers (from Amazon too) routed with your links.

    Having access to a campus gives you networking opportunities with potential draw-ins if you're located in the right area.

    I actually love it when a market is full of companies competing. I can use my quality to demand a higher price for my performance. The more a niche is saturated, the more consumers I can pick up by actually delivering quality based on consistent performance.

    In media there are a fuck ton of requests for 3D or 2D content animators. There will never be enough good artists in the field to fill up these positions. As for work, you don't even need to draw or model from scratch anymore, and if you know some of the more secret tricks, you don't even need to spend more than 30 minutes for what would be charged for a weeks worth of work. The jobs don't pay much on demand, but by bulk quantity of requesting buyers you can easily make $500 daily. It takes a sharp mind to spot things like this and be able to capitalize on them.

    Is that why Jared closed his doors temporarily? I used his service and it was excellent. I was wondering where he went.

    I've been actually debating opening my own BST for content writing but I just figured "Who the hell needs another content writer?" The BST section is flooded with them, and people complain about the crappy services but those are usually people who pay pennies per word. And honestly I never made the connection.

    I haven't found another $5 per 100 words that has anything like Jared. There is nothing in that $4-10 per 100 words that has similar quality. I check that section everyday for new options.
